Catching Up

I just got home from being out of town for work (just a day trip) and am beat. Does driving long distances make ya'll just feel tired? I feel like I do after I keep the nursery at church on Sundays! Anyway, it was a great trip. It's nice when you get positive feedback from a client.

You just don't know how excited I was when I got home and realized my beloved Yankees are on TV tonight! Woo hoo!!! I plan on sitting my rear in my chair and enjoying approximately 3 hours of good TV. Not only do I get to see my Jeter baby, but Petitte is pitching and that's just sheer eye-candy.


Jeter                     Petitte

It's been so busy this week that I haven't been able to post about my weight loss results from my self-imposed 20 Pounds N 20 Weeks challenge. I lost 1.2 last week and was .4 away from reaching my goal of having lost 3 pounds by this past Saturday.



I feel good though and am just keeping on keeping on. I started running again last week and hope to be able to do a 5K by the end of May.

Oh! One more thing. Our ironing board has pretty much been setup in our bedroom for about um... 5 years. We just don't have a good place to store it that's easily accessible. Look at what my sweet Hubs did! He hung up one of those iron/ironing board holder thingies for me!


And my heart is happy.

Wow. I printed a picture of Jeter...and the ironing board thingy. Both do things for me...

Rachel said...

I know what you mean about driving and exhaustion. I'm the same way. Enjoy your Yankees, and congrats on your goals! You're doing great!

LeAnna said...

YES, driving exhausts me! It's nuts, you don't do anything but sit there and stay awake....
I like your ironing board hanger thingy, I need one of those in my closet. Enjoy your evening!

Hi, Jill. Congrats on a great client visit and also on your continued weight loss success! You are so going to lose those 20 in 20 weeks.

Aw, isn't it wonderful when those little things make our heart happy? Your hubs is a good man.

p.s. Guess who is our Friday Follower of the Week for tomorrow? Yep, yep - IT IS YOU! Another congrats since you will be listed in our coveted No. 4 slot. Hope to see your FF post up tomorrow.

Yes driving/riding wears me out too!

I think you're on track to meet your goal by Saturday! How exciting!

We have one of those ironing board things {in the KITCHEN} because the door to our closet is weird. lol

It's sweet when our hubby's do something so simple and yet it makes us soooo happy! And yes, I remember those games. AND loved both of them!
